And I agree with most of what he says. But there are two glaring errors that I feel I must point out.
He said: "...Ten days later that glory returned to earth on the day of Pentecost."
I don't know how he could make such a big mistake. Feast of Weeks is called Pentecost because it is fifty (50) days after the first weekly sabbath after Passover. Where He got Ten (10) days from I don't know.
He also said: "...Christ’s resurrection, however, did not resolve this controversy, because in that year (33 A.D.) the preparation day for Passover fell on a Friday, Passover was on Saturday, and the sheaf was thus waved on Sunday, the day after Passover. Therefore, in that year both factions were satisfied."
Please, please read the accounts again. Friday is always the "preparation" for the weekly Sabbath. The Sabbath he is referring to is the first high day Sabbath which began the Feast of Unleavening, not the weekly Sabbath. Yahshua was taken down and put in the tomb on what we call Wednesday evening which was the beginning of the High day Sabbath, the biblical day is from sunset to sunset. Thursday was the High Sabbath that Scripture is referring to here. Friday is always the "preparation" for the Weekly Sabbath. He arose at the end of the weekly Sabbath or Saturday evening or "the beginning of the first day of the week". That is three days and three nights just as Scripture says.
Look at Leviticus 23. Yahshua is the wave sheave of firstfruits. Seven Sabbaths plus one day later brings us to the Feast of Weeks aka Pentecost. Pentecost is the only High Sabbath that will always fall on the same day of the week.
